If you're driving in the Barossa Valley in South Australia, you're sure to pass plenty of wineries and cellar doors. But if you're like us and on a budget, sometimes you just want some quick grub without all the fuss or the big price tag. Let me introduce you to Lyndoch Bakery, serving up excellent bakery fare.
(Note: The bakery also has a restaurant attached but I can only comment on the bakery itself as I haven't eaten at the restaurant.)
Lyndoch is a little town (population of about 1500) located between Gawler and Tanunda in the Barossa Valley. There's a cute IGA grocery store just up the main street from the bakery which often has local produce for sale.
As you step inside the bakery, this is the scene that greets you along with the seductive smell of baked goods wafting up your nostrils.
At this point you might look down and say to yourself "pies, pasties and sausage rolls...oh my!" All hot, fresh and baked on the premises daily.

Everything we've tried has been delicious every time. The pastry is never dry or from frozen, always fresh and perfectly cooked. They have quite a selection of sweets as well, including whoopie pies, cheesecakes, cream puffs, tarts, danishes and more. If you're in search of a great bakery in the Barossa, the Lyndoch Bakery awaits you.
